A brief history

Founded in the 18th century (when it was known as “Gorce”) and considered one of the best second growths at the time of the 1855 Medoc classification, this estate is located on one of the finest gravelly hillocks in Cantenac. Indeed, Brane-Cantenac was often sold at first growth prices!

Henri Lurton selects the youngest plots from our vineyard for Margaux de Brane. A silky, fruit-driven wine with impressive roundness and red fruit flavours, the wine is accessible in style. It offers an introduction to the wonders of the Margaux appellation and in particular to the signature style of Brane.

Brane-Cantenac Blanc was born of Henri Lurton’s passion for his terroir, his dedication to precision and his steadfast determination. His desire was to create a dry white wine delivering fruit, freshness, and a perfect balance between roundness and acidity. Brane-Cantenac Blanc is the estate’s first white wine, a magnificent expression of a singular micro-terroir.

Since Henri Lurton took over in 1992, he has made it his mission to produce the best possible wine, reinforcing Brane’s position as a second classified growth in 1855. The result is a fine wine that perfectly expresses its remarkable terroir.

The name of our second wine honours Baron Jacques-Maxime de Brane, who owned the estate in the 19th century. Blended from vats carefully selected for their suppleness, it is aged just like the First Wine, but for a 12-month period.
